About

Associate Professor of the University of São Paulo, with undergraduate studies in Agronomy and graduate studies in “Animal Nutrition” and “Use of Nuclear Techniques in Mineral Metabolism in Ruminants”. Post-doc programme on studies of whole crop products for dairy cows at Reading University (UK). Experience in studies in animal production, with emphasis on evaluation of feeding stuffs, quantification and qualification of bioactive molecules and alternative feeds targeting strategies for sustainable ruminant production and food security. Since 1985, researcher at CENA/USP in the area of nuclear and related techniques in agricultural productivity studies. Consultant for the International Atomic Energy Agency and ad hoc consultant of FAPESP, CNPq, EMBRAPA and PADCT-MIC. Have experience in animal science with an emphasis in animal feed assessment, quantification and qualification of bioactive molecules and nutritional strategies for sustainable production of ruminants and food security: • use of radiotracers in animal body composition studies (3H), bioavailability of phosphorus (32P) and calcium (45Ca) in supplements for ruminants, mineral metabolism in domestic animals in Brazil (32P) and Radioimmunoassay (125I); • in vitro gas production test (syringes and transducer) to evaluate co-products, tanniniferous plants and plant secondary metabolites as modifiers of ruminal fermentation; • use of tracers for quantifying the ruminal microbial mass (15N and purine derivatives) and diet food constituent (δ13C and δ 15N); • in vivo quantification of enteric methane production (chambers and SF6 tracer) in studies of fibrous residues and pastureland in strategies to increase the sustainable production of ruminants CNPq 1D: http://lattes.cnpq.br/7274814941767456.
